***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

Declan Reede has been given a second chance with the love of his life Alyssa and with Sinclair Racing, even though it is not in the ProV8. He knows he needs to keep his nose clean for the chance to get back in that ProV8 car.

He has embraced being a father and owned up to all the mistakes he made during the four years he was gone. He is starting his new life with Alyssa and their daughter and is willing to do whatever is necessary to keep his nose clean and win back the

5 Stars!!!

I was given this book in turn for an honest review.

They have their second chance; they have their family, love and whole life ahead of them. With a new found sense of purpose, Declan is determined to show the world; Alyssa and Phoebe are his future. When his past faces him head on, can he fight the knee jerk reactions and strive to be the ultimate better man?

My love for Declan Reede I honestly didn’t think could become any bigger than it already was. Michelle Irwin has given us the s

*** Gifted in exchange for my honest review ***

Michelle Irwin has created a lively series based on the pro v8 racing circuit. With scenes based in Australia including Brisbane, Sydney, and of course my new home in New Zealand got a mention ;) Maybe I will have to go check out the Pro Series when its in Hamilton next!
If you have ever had a petrol head for a Hubby/Partner or Boyfriend or follow race cars you will recognise the tracks Declan races at, and Ms Irwin does transport you to the excitmen

This is the 4th book in thhe Declan Reede series and the whole time, I've found myself holding my breath hoping he can get his shit together and become the man you know is hiding under the surface. The man that for a long while, even Declan seemed to be afraid of.

With an engagement ring on Alyssa's finger and the imminent move of the love of his life and their daughter Phoebe into his Sydney home, normal day to day life becomes a challenge Declan has never known. How will this previously notori

This is book 4 in the Declan Reede series. I have been on pins and needles hoping that Declan can get his act together for not only Alyssa but their daughter Phoebe as well. This is the final book for Alyssa and Declan. can he get his things figured out and become the family man that Alyssa needs and knows he can be. Or will his dream of driving again get in the way?

This book made me want to scream and shake Declan from time to time. But everything was tied up and all questions were answered. S

Oh Declan oh Declan.

What can I say but oh Declan.

Alyssa and Declan move to Sydney to start both their new jobs.

It looks like no one will interfere with them any more and they can get on with their life's. Well maybe one person. The other Sinclair racing driver Hunter.

Can Hunter run a wedge between Alyssa and Declan or even Danny and Declan or will he get what is coming to him.

We are also wondering if any more kids will be on the cards for Alyssa and Dec or will Pheobe be an only child. All this

This book is, perhaps, my favourite of the series. We met Declan when he was a boy, a hot headed feisty boy who was in love with the girl next door, but then he left her for the lure of V8s and engine grease...then we saw him as the still hot headed, tempestuous and broken young man who had lost Alyssa and didnt know know how to cope with that....then we saw him as the young Adult who was fighting to get to know his daughter, while he screwed up a lot, it was usually for the right reasons....but ...more

Once again Michelle Irwin has written another amazing book, I don’t think we will ever get sick of this man we love reading his story.

We found this book to be a bit different and maybe that because we seen the characters grow a lot more we seen Declan really stand up and grow up and put his family first and always thought of their needs before his own so that was really great to watch compared to the party goer in earlier books and he seem to put himself out the

I felt like I went through the years with Alyssa and Declan as I read through this final book of their story. Although this one felt a bit slow paced compare to the other books but I guess it’s because their life in this book is much more stable than when they first started.

I love how the characters grew throughout the series. I love looking at Declan in this book and see how hs perspective differs from here and from then. The maturity and evolution each c

OMG Declan Reede what have you done to me!!!!

Im so sad that this series has come to an end i've loved every part of his story from the fast living wild and crazy Declan right down to the happily under the thumb of his girls, family man that he becomes.
I read the last couple of chapters as slow as I could not wanting my journey with him to end, this book had me laughing my head off at Declan and Morgan and the antics that they get up to, but I also shed a tear or two as Declan visits Emmanuel's

After reading Declan's story so far I couldn't wait to get my hands on this the 4th and final book. Michelle Irwin finishes Declan's story in the same way that she wrote the rest of his story with conflicts and tribulations that he must make choices about and how those choices then affect those around him and the rest of his life.

Wow! What an amazing, if not turbulent, journey. Declan and Alyssa certainly had their share of bumps in the road. The started as friends, went to people in love who couldn't be around each other with hurting the other, to hopelessly and completely devoted to one another. They definitely hurt one another along the way but, in the end, they found what was staring them both in the face since they were kids. This is by far my favorite of the series so far but, I still have to read Decode so, that m ...more

Wow! It's been a rollercoaster ride for Declan Reede. Reading Declare was bittersweet. This is such a great series I did not want it to end. Declan has come such a long way and it hasn't been easy. You kind of want to hate him in the beginning but you just can't, you end up being his biggest fan. Well, besides Phoebe. :) It had a very happy happily ever after, which made me happy.

Seriously though 5+ stars for this series, it has everything you could want!

With DECLARE, we have gladly and sadly reached the end of Declan Reede's untold story, and what a story it was. We've seen Declan, a teen who thought he knew what he wanted in life, turn into a young piece of shit that you wanted to kick in the nuts, who then grew up to become an honourable family man. His wild days are over and we see a man whose idea of a perfect night is one spent with his family. Although he's changed, there are still some element

Wow, this series is a very well written flowing story where every detail matters. Michelle Irwin has again outdone herself. This is not a light read, but it is addicting. Every word is added with propose. These characters have grown and all events add depth to their personalities. The plot has curves in the road sending the story in another direction I didn't see coming. It will be keeping you on your toes and turning the pages.

Declare by Michelle Irwin

Declare is the last book in this series. Michelle has taken you on a rollercoaster of a ride with this series.
I have watch Declan and Alyssa fall apart only to reunite. I've watch Declan grow in to a responsible man/father/boyfriend. It hasn't been easy for him or Alyssa.

If you think this book is going to be just about tying up loose ends your wrong. Declan has everything he wants, he is now a father has the beautiful Alyssa at his side living in Sydney. What could possi
Wow... This final book was epic!! I can't stop smiling after reading this epilogue! 😍😍

"I shifted my gaze from the ceiling and onto her angelic face. My heart expanded looking down over her. She and Phoebe looked so similar when they slept. Both held my heart hostage, and I never wanted that to change."

I have to say again that I find incredibly amazing that the author was able to write 6 books with only Declan's pov. It's so unusual to see series starring the male character pov only,

Wow what an ending. This whole series has been a whirlwind of emotions. Laughing, crying, crying some more, angry and now I’m happy again. Finally it all comes together in the end. The ONLY thing that STILL upsets me is, he tells no one why he was always crashing. THAT just has me upset. But all in all ya can’t have it all.

This book was a fitting end to a good series. Tied it all up nicely. I am glad I have some Australian book friends that helped me along the way understanding the lingo if I got confused.

This was a great ending to the series! Declan has finally gotten his life together, and noting will stop him from taking care of his family and making everything up to his girls for abandoning them when they most needed him. The story was great, I loved all of the characters (especially all the side characters) and Phoebe! I love Phoebe!

Definitely recommend this entire series!

I was a little reluctant to start reading 'Declare'... being the final story for Declan Reede, but not exaclty for the series (if you'd read the book & the note at the very end you would understand) I was a little sad & wanted to prolong it as much as possible. But I couldn't put it off for too long, I really needed to know if Declan & Alyssa would finally get together.... With almost finding myself on Michelle Irwin's doorstep after reading 'Decipher' book 3, OMG that wouldn't have been good... ...more

This is the last book in the Declan Reede series and it is the one I have been dying for. I finally got all my answers questioned, got to see those who had theirs coming to them finally get it and to see where their relationship ends up.

In the first books Declan never took it well when things got tough or didn't go his way. This always irritated me with him, don't get me wrong I loved him but boy did he make it hard during those times. In this book he has to show everyone that he isn't the same

Declare is the final book in the Declan Reede series. I feel like I've been on a roller coaster ride reading Declan's books... one minute I love him and the next I want to slap him. What a story its been!

We've seen Declan go from having everything but the girl to having nothing but the girl and then working on getting it all back.

At the beginning of these books Declan was very immature and quick tempered but by the end of the series the growth in him as a charac
